Re: [gembud] BND question

See $GEMTBL/config/clo.tbl

! This table specifies the alias name for GEMPAK station table and boundary
! info files used by the NMAP seek and locator functions. Alias names defined
! in this table are referenced in the table "$GEMTBL/nmap/locator.tbl".
! Note that both types of data sets can be used by the locator function,
! whereas the seek function can only access the station table data sets.
! The first column of this table, (ALIAS), specifies the alias name used
! by the table "locator.tbl".
! The second column of this table, (FILE TYPE), specifies whether the
! data set is a GEMPAK station table (0) or boundary info file (1).
! Note that boundary info files only contain information about the actual
! boundary files such as boundary names and pointers into the boundary files.
! The third column of this table, (TABLE NAME) is the actual file name
! for the station table or boundary file.  Avaliable station tables are
! located in the directory "$GEMTBL/stns". Available boundary info files are
! located in the directory "$GEMTBL/bounds".

How does one tell per available file in $GEMTBL/boundary which corresponding "name" to use in gpmap's "BND" parameter??

The required entry for BND seems independent of the corresponding file name or any tag in the .info files.

Examples: BND=state_bnds for $GEMTBL/statebnds.tbl but BND=lakes for $GEMTBL/lakesbnds.tbl (notice you need an "_bnds" in BND when plotting states, but no so for lakes).

Where is this defined?
